Recommendation for kitchen mixers

My aged Kenwood Gourmet FP505 is coming to the end of its life. I mostly use it for making bread, also cakes and chopping/slicing vegetables occasionally. It has a liquidiser attached. My previous set-up included a little grinder for coffee, breadcrumbs etc. I don’t want to spend many hundreds of ££s on a flash machine that can do things I don’t want. Do any Gransnetters have a recommendation for a machine that would meet my fairly limited needs?

I love my Artisan, and it is really heavy which makes it great for managing bread making without skittering around. However, they are around £500, but look out for special offers, sometimes certain colours are considerably less. They are the ones you always see on Bake Off, although I have had mine for about 10 years.
